Monitoring performance of Veterinary Services against standards can bring valuable insights both for WOAH and WOAH Members. Through its Annual Report, the Observatory presents a selection of PVS Pathway data that can help better understand the strengths and weaknesses in the performance and governance of Members’ Veterinary Services.
How can you access our veterinary performance analysis?
The veterinary performance dashboard presents the results of the analysis in an interactive way.

How did we monitor the implementation of standards related to performance of Veterinary Services?
Monitoring the implementation of standards related to governance and performance of Veterinary Services requires building and analysing indicators using various data sources.
What veterinary performance indicators did we use to monitor the implementation of these standards?
Several indicators made it possible to monitor the implementation of standards related to governance and performance of Veterinary Services, among them:
Members’ engagement in the PVS Pathway:
Number of Members that have received a PVS mission
Percentage of Members that have engaged in PVS Activities (at least one Activity), in each WOAH region
Number of requests received for PVS Activities (already undertaken or planned)
Number of PVS Activities undertaken
Members’ continued engagement in the PVS Pathway:
Number of Members that have had a PVS Evaluation/Follow-up mission between 2016 and 2021
Percentage of Members that have had a PVS Evaluation/Follow-up mission between 2016 and 2021
Number of Members that had their last PVS Evaluation/Follow-up mission before 2016 (and could consider the need for a Follow-up mission)
Percentage of Members that had their last PVS Evaluation/Follow-up mission before 2016 (and could consider the need for a Follow-up mission)
Number of Members that have had only one PVS Evaluation (and no further PVS engagement) since 2006
Percentage of Members that have had only one PVS Evaluation (and no further PVS engagement) since 2006
Members’ performance – Levels of Advancement:
Distribution of the Levels of Advancement for each Critical Competency
Average Levels of Advancement for each Critical Competency
Percentage of Members that have a Level of Advancement of 3 or more for a given Critical Competency.
What data sources did we use to build workforce and resources indicators?
Two main data sources made it possible to build the monitoring indicators:
Members’ engagement in the PVS Pathway:
Official requests received from Members and missions undertaken, as indicated in the PVS Mission dataset managed by the Capacity Building Department, WOAH, since 2006
Performance of Veterinary Services:
Levels of Advancement of Critical Competencies (from the PVS Tool). The dataset was compiled and provided by the Capacity Building Department, WOAH. For easy reference, the identifying numbers of the Critical Competencies used in this report are based on the Sixth Edition of the PVS Tool (2013) and the First Edition of the PVS Aquatic Tool (2013). PVS Evaluation and Follow-up missions conducted between 2016 and 2021 were considered
More on the topic
ObservatoryThe Observatory is a transversal programme that provides an overview of the uptake of international standards on animal health and welfare and veterinary public health by our Members. It contributes to the progressive improvement of their implementation as well as to the constant assessment of our corporate initiatives by providing valuable feedback and recommendations.Discover
PVS PathwayThe World Organisation for Animal Health (WOAH) mission is to improve animal health and welfare worldwide; national Veterinary Services provide the basis of global capacity to achieve this mission. Recognising this, the WOAH has developed international Standards on both the quality of Veterinary Services’ provision, as well as technical animal health and veterinary public health management. Two Chapters of the WOAH Terrestrial Animal Health Code (the Terrestrial Code) are dedicated to the Quality of Veterinary Services.Discover
